Choosing a Manual Toothbrush
For the toddlers, we suggest The Brushies Book and Character FingerBrush. You can start a lifelong habit the right way by catching their interest early. Jack N’ Jill tooth brushes are biodegradable and come in a variety of animal characters. The Grabease brushes are unique in that they have a built-in choke guard, to save the child from sticking the brush in too far. In addition, there are two opposing rows of bristles to brush twice the area at once.
For the independent older child, consider the RADIUS Totz Brush for its slightly thicker handle and bright glittery colors, the TePe Select Mini for its smaller head, or the Brush with Bamboo kids size brush for its recyclability.
Another good time to use a manual toothbrush is following any surgery or procedure affecting the mouth. Delicate, healing tissues require a slow, careful touch. Our Post-Surgery Bundle includes the TePe Special Care Toothbrush with 12,000 ultra-soft filaments, the TePe Extra-Soft Nova Toothbrush, TePe Angled Interdental Brushes in 6 sizes and TePe Bridge and Implant floss with stiff plastic ends. The Implant/Orthodontic brush has only two rows of bristles to access tight spaces. The Interspace toothbrush is a single tuft to reach way into crevices. This brush is sold with 12 replaceable tips.
When traveling, we recommend a travel specific toothbrush. Rather than bringing along your clunky, heavy powered brush, consider the TePe Travel Toothbrush that is sold as part of our Travel Bundle (also including toothpaste tablets and single strands of floss). It folds in half and uses the handle as its protective case.
Another lightweight option is the Adult Brush with Bamboo toothbrush. Some people are just more comfortable with a standard manual toothbrush. For them, we suggest the Nova Soft toothbrush. The ergonomic handle has a thumb rest for better control and grip. If you’re willing to try a brush with a slight twist, try the TePe GOOD Regular Head Soft Toothbrush. This toothbrush is made of sustainable raw materials and is produced only with renewable resources. Feel good about your carbon footprint. For our clients who are elderly or disabled, we offer a Dexterity Assistant tool. This TePe Extra Grip attachment slides onto the handle of most toothbrushes, to add bulk and surface texture for a better grip. This is also a handy addition for a caregiver to use when brushing another’s teeth. We also offer a stiffer Denture brush for use on removeable dentures.
There are many styles and choices, but we hope you find one or several that will work for you on our website, www.oralhealthguru.com.
